1. Body Language
Whenever you go for the speaking you do make some researches on what to speak. You need a certain point on which you can give speech. In the process of making of points we mostly forget how to deliver those saying. This may lead you to take too much time for presenting your views. You know body language has the most of the influence in public speaking rather than other things. So, rather than focusing on what to say too much, you do have to focus on body languages.
Always make eyes contact with your audiences. Don't stare away. If you don't give eye contact to your audiences they will never listen to your single word. So give eyes contact, even if the person feel bored they will be forced to hear your word. But don't stare the same person, you have to contact other audiences too.
Always stand in upright positiion. Don't bend your body. Don't fold your arm, it shows you are bored to speak. And don't lean too much also.
Never cross your legs when you are speaking. It shows the lack of confidence and you are feared.
Use your hand whenever you speak. Move your hand to show your expression.
Never point your finger to any audience, it shows the dictatorship which might people find offended.
2. Positive Impression (Sense of humour)
People find too bored to listen your word, your speaking. What are the best way to engage and attracts others in your speaking; is humour. Sometimes in the middle of speaking you should crack some jokes so that people may burst into laughter. This will help people loving your speaking.
I recall my past, my teacher used to say some jokes whenever we felt bored listening to his lecture. When we burst into laughter it really give us joy and relax to our mind and then we start to listen him again. If you don't have any jokes to crack then you can also share some of the motivational event which gives positive impression in them. It is also another way of enthusiasing public.

This will be your real drawback. So always try to avoid repeating same word again and again. Not only that people sometime start to think certain point for long time.
